3.4 Creating a Policy

A policy specifies the rules that determine what files are moved between the primary path and the secondary path, the direction files are moved, and when the policy is enforced.

Create a policy that determines what data to move and when to move it. A rule defines the direction to move files and at least one of the following filter options:

A policy can have no schedule, or it can be scheduled to run hourly, daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly, yearly, or on custom dates. Scheduled and unscheduled policies can be run manually.

If no pairs exist on the target server, the Setup Wizard automatically opens and guides you through the process of creating a pair and creating a policy. The wizard automatically associates the pair and the policy. Other policies can be created with the Policy Wizard. Policy names must be unique on the server.
